Any horror/gothic fans out there?

Came across this look at this review of Guillermo del Toro’s latest film, Crimson Peak.

It looks pretty special and sports some pretty incredible visual scenery! Take a look:




Has anyone seen it yet? What's it like?

    I saw Crimson Peak in the cinema a few weeks ago- it was good considering it's not my type of film ( we decided in the cinema).

    I liked parts of it but at times I was bored and I lost track of the story a bit. But in saying that I enjoyed the ending. It was very "Gorey" at points.

    I do like horror films though. "The House at the End of the Street" was the first horror film which I watched at the cinema. I loved it, but I made a bit of a fool of myself - I'm embarrassed to admit I "screamed" and jumped in my seat (literally)....... I was the only one

    I like sci fi horror - films such as Alien or The Thing.
    Slasher type movies I tend to avoid.

    Tomorrow is a mystery
    But today is a gift
    That’s why it’s call the present

    Thanks for that apandav - glad to hear you at least enjoyed bits of it.

    Horror's an interesting genre. It seems like a bit of a marmite thing (either you love or hate it).

    Having said that, I'm not a horror fan but Skive, I'm with you on the Alien/The Thing.. thing - great films both!

    Why do you think a lot of us like watching scary things?

    Intresting question James. Well maybe some people like the "thrill" factor, just as the same reasons to wanting to go on a rollercoaster. I also find, with the right storyline it can be addictive- you want to know what comes next, so much so you put yourself through that "fear". In horror films, scary things happen- maybe people want to get a feel for it, without directly being involved in it in their own lives (that would just be too much haha).
